The Hunger Games: Mockingjay clan is about to get one little addition to their family! Actor Wes Chatham — who will play Castor in the upcoming Hunger Games installments — is expecting his first child with wife, American Ninja Warrior co-host Jenn Brown.

The couple just confirmed the happy news to People saying, “With as much as this baby is kicking, we think we have America’s first Baby Ninja Warrior!” While we’re on the topic of puns, we wonder if Wes will be buying his bundle of joy a mocking...jay when the time comes (Sorry, we had to!).

Wes and Jenn tied the knot back in April 2012 in the 35-year-old actor’s home state of Georgia. If you’re not too familiar with the actor, Wes previously starred in numerous films including The Help, where he played Skeeter’s (Emma Stone’s character) brother, Carlton Phelan.

He was also well-known for his role in the hit CBS television series, The Unit, opposite Scott Foley (who is also expecting his third child) and Dennis Haysbert.


Wes will soon be hitting the big screen when he takes on the role of Castor, one of the two cameramen from the Capital (his brother Pollux will be played by Elden Henson) when The Hunger Games: Mockingjay hits theaters on November 21.

Congratulations to the parents-to-be!
